Hello to the beautiful night,
It's July 13, 2022. The moon is full and closer to Earth tonight. I just finished recording a couple of DJ mixes to share and finally add to my website. I always feel incredibly nervous before sharing my sets/mixes, as it’s challenging to let go of being a critical listener. I play my mixes back to myself to make sure no tech issues made their way in. In that process I overanalyze my recordings, forgetting that it’s meant to be a capsule of energy captured in the moment, down to the second, which is where the value is found. The same certainly goes for my own music that I produce. This year I’m embarking on a whole new voyage which has granted me time to invest in the bigger vision I have for myself as a musician. I couldn’t have dreamed of a better season to shed old skin in. The energy of summer always fills me with confidence and openness to adventure. I find I express myself best through written word, so my goal is to connect through monthly diaries. I want to be sure to not overextend myself, but I think monthly entries will be a good start to finding my rhythm on this new path. I found an opportunity to live creatively full time and grabbed it. All the years of DJing have led me here, as I am able to support myself through music while I record my first album. This is one of a few visions that I quietly work on. I wanted to keep this entry short and sweet - as much work has to be done. There is much chaos in the world right now, unspeakable truths. I hope the space I create feels warm, yet exciting. Thank you, readers, see you in August!
